I hope you’re having a wonderful, relaxing Labor Day!
It’s stunningly gorgeous here in North Pole, AK and I’m loving it! We only have a few weeks left of nice weather, so I hear, and fall has already set in. The leaves are changing and it’s just beautiful. Fall is my favorite season!!
In knitting news, I’ve been making the Mulberry Hat from Modern Top-Down Knitting.
It’s so cute and I’m loving making it! To be honest, I love every pattern in this book. When I say love, I mean I literally want (and hope!) to make many of the patterns. I don’t think any other pattern book has captured my heart quite so much! I highly recommend this book!
I had actually started using this yarn to crochet a hat (my own pattern) but wasn’t happy with it, so ripped it out and am now knitting the Mulberry Hat.
The yarn is lovely. It’s Therapi by SWTC. The color is one of my favorites!! I couldn’t find a color name on the label, but you can see it’s a gorgeous fuchsia. LOVE. Love love love.
Here I am working a gauge swatch (so important to make sure your project actually fits!).
Here’s the start of the hat:
And I’m about half-way done now:
(I took this picture while out shopping at yard sales!)
I hope to get some more work done on it tonight. I’m super excited to start taking actual photo shoots, showing off my finished objects! My boo is an excellent photographer!
Enjoy your day and I hope you get in some knitting or crocheting time!
Peace, Joy and Love…
